Year Three, Week Sixteen – Jessica


There are some things in this life that I will never understand.  While I know there will always be unanswered questions, there are some that still bother me.  Today’s question: why do people plant fake flowers?  The first time I saw this, we had just moved to Alabama.  I thought it was just an Alabama thing, but then ended up seeing it all over the south.  And now I’ve seen it in South Korea.  This pot boasts both real and fake plants.  Do people think this looks real?  Especially in the middle of winter?  Do they think they’re fooling anyone?  They don’t seem to last any longer than the real thing and they are much more costly.  I don’t exactly have a green thumb, but I’m still stumped.  Can anyone enlighten me?
